Inneract Project’s 15th Year Celebration

Inneract Project 15th Year Celebration Featuring Iddris Sandu

Our history has been through many phases and we have learned a lot in the last decade and a half.

Setting our sights forward, we dedicate our October 19th 15th Year Celebration theme to “Empowering the next generation of Black and Brown designers,” as we aspire to broaden our work to impact communities everywhere.

This year we are thrilled to announce Iddris Sandu as our #IP15 keynote speaker. Iddris is a Ghana-born, LA-bred, self-described architect who has consulted for Snapchat & Uber, collaborated with Nipsey Hussle & Kanye West, and boasts honors from President Obama—all by the age of 22. He is a true innovator and luminary in the ever-exploding universe of design.

We are also excited to introduce panelist, Yasmine Evjen. She’s a Senior Design Advocate at Google who helps designers & developers build human-centered experiences using Material Design, but you might also know her as creator & host of Centered, a video series from Google Design exploring the intersection of design, product, and people around the world.

Their panel discussion will be moderated by Renee Reid, Staff UX Design Researcher at LinkedIn, whose passion & activism is dedicated to the importance of representation in the UX industry. She regularly inspires and encourages the next generation of women & minority professionals in their career journeys and helps individuals make successful career pivots into UX. She will surely be dropping some gems in this conversation!

We can’t wait to hear what these brilliant design thinkers will share in conversation during #IP15.

We invite the local communities we serve, our supporters in tech, its design leaders, education organizations, non-profits, designers and all social impact organizers working to create a better future for our youth.

We hope you will join us to celebrate this major milestone in our quest for more diversity in design and to ensure a bright future for Inneract Project and the communities we serve.
